  • ”Adrian Everitt (Bone Black Ltd) has worked for me on several projects, from advising on colour selection to designing and executing a trompe l’oeil. His work is of the highest standard and his great breadth of experience allows him to give wise, creative and sound advice. He works with meticulous attention to detail, but is well able to accommodate constraints of time and budget. I can recommend him unreservedly.”

  • ”When I undertook the complete restoration of a Grade 2* Manor House I was introduced to Adrian Everitt (Bone Black Ltd) as the main contractor for the decorative paintwork. Over the course of five years Adrian transformed the Queen Anne property with outstanding trompe l’oeil and wood graining. The quality of his work was the primary factor in the manor house receiving a Heritage award in 2002 and subsequent praise from HRH the Prince of Wales when he visited the house in 2003. ”

  • ”Emeny Turley Partnership Ltd had the pleasure of working with Adrian Everitt (Bone Black Ltd)and his colleagues on the refurbishment of Aspinalls Club in Curzon Street, London in 2012. They provided the highest quality advice service and on-site workmanship expertise that was necessary for the restoration and improvement of the existing decorations that now, totally complements the historic grandeur of this listed building. Adrian’s and his colleagues’ understanding of the overall objectives and the quality of their work would benefit any future project that they may be involved with. ”
